Redhat 9 hard disk crash
I had Redhat 9 on my system working very fine for 1 year now, and suddenly the dard disk crashed. Am not able to boot the system. It says 'Kernel panic try passing init= kernel option' and the system halts.
I have important data on the disc viz. quiet a few mysql tables with very important data and several php scripts in /var/www/html folder. In any case I want them back.
I tried installing Redhat 9 once again on a new hard disk and tried connecting the crashed one as secondary.
At this time the system boots only mounting the /dev/hda5 ie root and nothing else is seen.
Unable to access the data on crashed disk.
Please help me, otherwise it is a terrible loss for me.
Regards and thanks in advance who try to pull me out of the crisis
